A downloadable game for Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux
This is my entry in the 30th Ludum Dare competition. I wanted to try out a couple of things, code-wise, and also figured a traditional side-scrolling shooter would be fun to make.
The theme was 'Connected Worlds', and my idea was that you'd be travelling over the surface of a 'superconnected', planet-sized alien entity, which would constantly be reforming itself into wave of enemies. Obviously, only the core mechanic made it into the game. This was great fun to make though, so I might revisit it soon.
Controls: WASD or cursors to move, Ctrl or LMB to fire. F10 toggles the screen effect.
This was a solo project. Screen effect is Painterly, by Generic Evil Business Ltd. SFX from various CC0 sources. All other work was my own.
